can't reinstall audio driver

Product Name: HP TouchSmart 520-1070
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I needed to do a factory reset on the PC.  After resetting, there is no sound.  the only device selection option is "AMD HDMI Output"  I attempted to download and install  the driver several different ways - including run as administrator, and through the "secret" administrator account.  I get an error that the certificate is blocked, and i need to unblock the publisher.  However, there are no blocked publishers, and i can't seem to find any way around this.

 

thanks,

 

jon

Re: can't reinstall audio driver

Hello

 

I have suggestion that may fix problem if the alternate audio driver download did not fix and you don't want Windows generic driver.

 

A factory install back to windows 7 will create a folder on PC's "C' drive called SWSETUP. This folder has drivers and most software HP installed from factory image.

 

There is a subfolder for drivers. Look for IDT folder. In that folder you will find the IDT driver HP installed at the factory. You have to poke around but the setup.exe file for IDT audio is in there.

 

Install driver.

As I understand

No worries as I'd love to help, however, I need a few more details to provide an accurate solution:

Did the issue occur after upgrading to windows 10? which OS was supplied with this computer?

Have you attempted to delete the audio drivers and then install the latest update from the HP Website?

 

Meanwhile, here are a few things you could try:

Re: can't reinstall audio driver

Greetings @Philip4u,

 

Welcome to HP Forums and thanks for the post. 

 

I understand that you are looking for a driver for your computer running on Windows 7. 

Don't worry, I will be happy to help. 

For me to be able to assist you better, I would require the product number/model of your computer. 

 

Alternately, you can run HP Support Assistant on your computer to automatically detect and install all the drivers meant for your computer. 

Please refer to this HP Article for assistance. 

Visit www.hp.com/drivers and enter the product of your computer to download the drivers manually. 

 

Keep me posted.
